Judging from the number of times your question has been viewed without receiving an answer, I would suggest that you either link to the pattern or quote the instruction exactly. I think that might help everyone see just what is needed.

The simplest way to do this is to hold the yarn that you're stopping over to the left. When you pick up the new color strand, it will lie on top of the old strand.

Do this on every row, and your yarns will twist.

Check out Amy's video on Intarsia in the Advanced section for a visual.

When doing color changes you have to twist the old/new colors to prevent a hole. Check out the vid in Advanced Tech 'How to knit with 2 colors at a time.'

Otherwise, helpful info here.
